Arrival of Product

Upon receiving your GatorStep, please place the package and its content in a shaded or climate controlled area, out of direct sunlight.

Surface Preparation

The surface area where GatorStep will adhere should be thoroughly prepared using an ammonia based cleaner. Prior to applying your GatorStep adhesive you will want to ensure the surface has been cleared of any loose debris, wiped clean and isv completely dry.


For a quick, straightforward, peel and stick process follow our visual guide below to install your GatorStep flooring. The initial repositionable ability will provide for simple and easy adhesion.

  • Confirm that any existing grease, adhesives, wax or similar coatings are cleared before installing
  • Be sure that the temperature of the air is above 60F when applying the exposed adhesive.

Installation for Challenging Substrates

Any surface where the perimeter of the GatorStep is not being applied directly onto finished fiberglass or aluminum will require the application of 3M™ Tape Primer 94. The 3M™ Tape Primer 94 should be utilized after the initial prep and before installation of GatorStep.

3M™ Tape Primer 94 helps promote adhesion to polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PET /PBT blends and other difficult to stick to substrates. Furthermore, it should be utilized on raised textured non-skid that has no transition to finished fiberglass or aluminum as well as consistent, aggressive textured surfaces.

Step 1

Be sure your surface is clean and dry before applying a thin, uniform layer of the primer. Use the minimum amount of product necessary. Porous surfaces may require 2 applications of uniform coverage and good adhesion.

Step 2

Allow the primer to dry completely between coats (approx. 5 minutes) and before applying GatorStep.
